Giant Pillow Fight at Schenley Park 8th Annual then Free Movie "Despicable Me 2"

At 8:20pm SHARP! (the movie starts close to 9pm at Dusk) there will be a mystery signal and a GIANT PILLOW FIGHT WILL BREAK OUT!  Kid Friendly, Bring your own Pillow! (BYOP!)  Only allowed to attack others that have pillows!  Amazing Fun! Last year we had 150+ people do this!  8th year doing this!

Here's a crazy video of the pillow fight from a couple of years before

Where: Schenley Park Flagstaff Hill

Address: Corner of Schenley Drive and Frew Street then up the Hill by where they are showing the movie on the right hand side as you go up the HILL!

Date: Sunday, July 13th

Time: 8:20pm  MYSTERY SIGNAL at 8:30pm SHARP! Then the Pillow War Begins ;-)

COST: FREE just bring a pillow! BYOP!

A Cacophony Society Event! (you may already be a member!)


Quick description of Event: This is the 7th annual giant pillow fight.  Show up in Pajamas or in cool comfortable clothes.

Show up early at 8:00 pm, BRING A PILLOW!  At 8:20pm SHARP!  a MYSTERY SIGNAL will sound and then ATTACK anyone with a pillow! (NO ATTACKING UNARMED CIVILIANS!)  Have fun! be silly don't hurt people.

PS. Watch out for Lil Kids! They are Dangerous Lil Buggers!  Be Safe! Soft Pillows Preferred! 

If anyone DROPS their Pillow you cannot attack them!  Also BE CAREFUL with hitting peoples heads with Pillows!  This is Exhaustingly FUN!  We will be done a lil bit before the movie.  10 to 15 minutes of PILLOW FIGHTING and then the movie or whatever you want to do!

Afterwards either watch the FREE MOVIE in the PARK which is "Despicable Me 2" or go on your own way or go to a local watering hole.

WE NEED HELP SPREADING THE WORD ABOUT THIS... just tell some friends and ask them to tell theirs.  It's usually about[masked] people and FUN!  Three years ago we got on Channel 11 TV.  Probably won't be on TV but will still be fun anyhow. 

FYI: This is a flashmob but it isn't at the same time.  Just people asserting their right to carry and use pillows. ;-)

    WOO HOO! PILLOW FIGHT is Tomorrow! BYOP!

    Be safe, Adults Police the kids! If someone is going TOO HARD swinging pillows, stop them by saying stop! And if that doesn't work grab the PILLOW!

    If you have a feather pillow that rips YOU are cleaning up after yourself! (be responsible). Get there around 8pm, at exactly 8:20pm the MYSTERY SIGNAL GOES OFF! (you'll know it when you hear it, very LOUD!) and then anyone with a pillow is allowed to attack anyone else with a pillow!

    This lasts about 15 mins at most(pillow fighting in the hot summer is exhausting) so have fun and enjoy!
